When her boss fatally chokes on a cookie that was gifted to Amy, she becomes the target of endless boss-killer jokes (as if accidental death is ever funny…). When David walks into the funeral with his new (if very strange) girlfriend on his arm Amy begins to think ‘what next?’!
But every superstitious girl to ever live knows that you should never ask ‘what next’ if you’re not ready for fate to answer!
Only when she finds shoes that purportedly belonged to screen siren of the past, Rita Hayworth, does Amy begin to think she’s ready to move on. As Dorothy’s ruby slippers allowed her to return home, Amy’s red leather pumps seem to propel her to her future.
In addition to drastically helping her wardrobe, the red shoes seem to transform Amy’s whole life. She allows her friends to convince her to get a makeover (or rather renew her original beauty from where it was hiding under the 7-year relationship), and decides to climb back up on the horse. Except, in this case the horse is a gorgeous green-eyed man. But alas, even his remarkable beauty cannot make up for his unbelievable stupidity, and Amy recognizes feelings for David starting to creep back in.
She straps her (super high-heeled) walking shoes on, and moves forward once again, figuring that focusing on work could be a good thing. And when her new boss turns out to be an oddly-familiar face, things get fun. And weird. And romantic. And mysterious...
This book is anything but predictable; it would be impossible to guess the ending, and I’m certainly not going to include any spoilers here, so start reading!
Rita Hayworth’s Shoes is a really fun book that is unlike any other.
